New research suggests that winemaking may have gotten its start at least eight thousand years ago. http://n.pr/2jqIyba

    Georgian Jars Hold 8,000-Year-Old Winemaking Clues
    Anthropologist Patrick McGovern, at the University of Pennsylvania, has been pursuing the origins of wine for many years, and that search took him to the mountainous areas east of the Black Sea, in what is today Georgia, Armenia, and Iran. "Everything pointed to that region as the area to investigate," he says.

Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.

    Sweetish's Farewell Show
    After 3 1/2 years of puppets, puns, and live "movie magic," Sweetish is coming to an end. Grouped randomly in 2014 for a live sketch comedy game show, Julia Hudson, Bobby Lang, Maura Pennington, Erik Sojka, and Brian Craig continued to meet every week, bonding over pop culture, hot goss, and fine Italian dining, and continued to perform on a regular basis.

Recently coined by scientists from the University of Portsmouth in England, the term 'kleptopredation' is defined as the act of hunting an animal with a full stomach and was first observed being employed by a particular kind of sea slug. http://bit.ly/2iX1DSl

    Kleptopredation is a new scientific term for super-sizing a meal at sea
    Kleptropredation isn't a crime, though the newly-coined term has a criminal ring, and the act is kind of like theft-meets-murder-in-a-meal. Technically, it's when a predator eats prey that has just hunted and has a full belly-such that the predator ends up eating its prey's prey as well.
